The little things make all the difference.

Alright. What a win. This team is dedicated. The Raiders brought a fierce game to the River City, but the Jags countered when it mattered and pulled out a crucial win. So after looking at some replays, here are two little details of otherwise big plays that might go unheralded, but really, made all the difference:

* on Rashad Jennings TD run, Eugene Monroe pulled out left and made a picture perfect block to seal the edge so RJ could stomp his run out for big yardage. The tip-toes became the story, but the block was a detail that made the difference.

* on David Garrard's fantastic throw to Jason Hill, not only did DG finally give enough power and air to a deep ball, but if you watch the replay, Hill makes a stellar last second burst to get himself in perfect position underneath the arch of the throw, right at the last second. It flashes by the eye, but if you study it, the details are there.

So Jag fans, anything else that might have slipped by the first glance? Let's give some credit to the unsung heroes who make the little plays at the right time that help shape the big picture. Go Jags.
